A comparatively lower MSI is more beneficial for sellers while a higher MSI is better for buyers. The July 2017 MSI of 4.2 months was at a mid range compared with July of 2016 and 2015.

Market Time

The average Days On Market (DOM) shows how many days the average property is on the market before it sells. An upward trend in DOM tends to indicate a move towards more of a buyer’s market, a downward trend a move towards more of a seller’s market. The DOM for July was 36, down from 47 days last month and down from 48 days in July of last year. The July 2017 DOM was at its lowest level compared with July of 2016 and 2015.

Selling Price Per Square Foot

The selling price per square foot is a great indicator for the direction of property values. Since median sales price and average sales price can be impacted by the ‘mix’ of high or low end properties in the market, the selling price per square foot is a more normalized indicator on the direction of property values. The July 2017 selling price per square foot of $1,163 was up 13.8% from $1,022 last month and up 13.4% from $1,026 in July of last year.

Selling Price vs Listing Price

The selling price vs listing price reveals the average amount that sellers are agreeing to come down from their list price. The lower the ratio is below 100% the more of a buyer’s market exists, a ratio at or above 100% indicates more of a seller’s market. The July 2017 selling price vs list price of 96.2% was up from 95.1% last month and up from 95.8% in July of last year.

Inventory / New Listings / Sales

This last view of the market combines monthly inventory of properties for sale along with new listings and sales. The graph shows the basic annual seasonality of the market as well as the relationship between these items. The number of new listings in July 2017 was 33, down -17.5% from 40 last month and down -15.4% from 39 in July of last year.
